Tyson is from the country music capital of Canada, Merritt, BC, located about halfway between Vancouver and the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Growing up, “ Tys” or “Timmy,” as he is known in the band, was surrounded in a musical environment where several of his relatives were accomplished country / bluegrass guitar and fiddle players. At the age of 11, he got his first acoustic guitar for Christmas and since has played in hard-rock, alternative, and funk bands. His favorite instruments are the Gibson Les Paul and the Fender Jazz Bass. As a bassist in Wee Dram, his goal is to find deep grooves with the drums and rhythm guitar and to create walking bass lines that make people want to jump out of their seats and dance.
